Danny Grainger’s men were handed their fifth straight away tie of the season when they were dawn to visit Nantwich in the first round proper of the FA Trophy.

So far the west Cumbrians have been drawn away to Knaresborough and Radcliffe in the FA Cup and Pontefract and Glossop in the FA Trophy.

The ties had been scheduled for November 14 but with teams below the National League expecting to be side-lined because of lockdown from Thursday it is now known when the tie will be played.

Nantwich are old rivals from the NPL Premier Division days and have been renowned for being a good footballing side. Whenever it is played it has all the ingredients for being an outstanding game.

Nantwich have only played five games in the Premier Division so far and lie 13th of 22 clubs – but are unbeaten. They have won both home games and drawn all three away fixtures.

Reds got through to the first round proper with Saturday’s1-0win at Glossop North End, courtesy of Conor Tinnion’s fifth-minute goal.

Unbeaten in eight League games so far, Reds only defeat of the season came in the FA Cup-tie at Radcliffe when a late collapse saw them slide from 3-1 ahead to 5-3 behind.
